Ralink is a good choice esp. for USB. You might have trouble using other

Also note that the wireless card in the laptop can be replaced for about ten
bucks. It's typically the easiest thing to replace in a laptop. If you decide to
swap out your wifi card I'd recommend Atheros.

I considered that, but I've heard rumours about laptop BIOSes blacklisting
wifi cards from other manufacturers, so I figured a USB device was an easier
solution.


That's a potential issue. I've only seen that happen with HP laptops, but you should research before spending the ten bucks.
